TSWALU where time is measured in the shifting colours of an infinite sky…

Surrounding the rugged Korannaberg Mountains in the Northern Cape Province of South Africa, Tswalu Kalahari Reserve covers 1000km2 (100 000 ha) of land on the edge of the mysterious desert wilderness that is the Kalahari.

Free from malaria and other tropical diseases, Tswalu Kalahari Reserve boasts 70 species of mammal including lion, cheetah, and desert black rhino, sable and roan antelope. More than 200 species of bird can also be found.

The Oppenheimer family bought Tswalu Kalahari Reserve in 1998. Providing luxurious accommodation for guests while remaining firmly committed to conservation in this protected area, Tswalu is a model for eco-tourism in today’s world. A multitude of outdoor activities awaits. Open-sided safari vehicles take you on game drives, during which you might find yourself staring at a Kalahari lion or desert black rhino. For those who want to venture where a vehicle cannot go, horseback rides and bush walks with local guides are available. To refresh yourself, sit down to a bush meal or take a break in Lekgaba lookout. As day fades, join your fellow guests for regular sundowners on Namakwari’s lantern-lit dunes.

There are daily flights from both Cape Town and Johannesburg into the tarred airstrip at Tswalu.
